We are so excited to welcome you to Reception at St. Patrick’s.
This year, we are lucky enough to have a fantastic new purpose-built classroom, including a fully enclosed canopy area. This enables us to have direct access to our outdoor area and allows the children to move from indoors to outdoors whenever they choose.
Play is key to our learning. Our whole learning environment is set up with areas of provision as invitations to play. While in these areas, the children are closely observed and helped to move forward in the key areas.
